Adult Ed: Fall Series II – Visions and Dreams

Adult Education – Fall Series II

VISIONS AND DREAMS: Spirituality and the Inner Life

Personal religious experience and encounters with the Holy are remarkable, and also common. Studies have shown that large percentages of church members report experiences they identify as mystical or religious. For millennia mystics and spiritual guides have helped us understand the messages of dreams and visions. More recently psychologists and neurobiologist have begun to chime in as well.

The first of four (4) sessions will begin Wednesday, October 29th and continue through November 19th. We invite you to join us for a time of discovery to explore an intriguing and mysterious aspect of spirituality and the inner life.

[su_quote cite=”Joel 2:28 (King James Bible ‘Authorized Version’, Cambridge Edition)”]”And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”

Adult Education Fall Series

Christian Identity in a Multi-faith World

We will start a new six week Adult Ed series based on a book by Brian McLaren, noted speaker, activist and public theologian. His book is titled Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?

[su_quote cite=”Brian McLaren”]”“When four religious leaders walk across the road, it’s not the beginning of a joke. It’s the start of one of the most important conversations in today’s world. Can you be a Christian without having to condemn or convert people of other faiths? Is it possible to affirm other religious traditions without watering down your own?”[/su_quote]

The answer is “YES” to both of these provocative questions. Please join us as we explore and discuss how to make this vision a reality.

When

Wednesday evenings at 7:30 PM starting September 3rd and running for six weeks

Location

Saint Thomas Episcopal Church – Library, see Directions & Campus Map
